To Pete & all that responded to my question, I thank you. The S&W 1st model American was the first large caliber cartridge handgun issued to the Cavalry & was considered the magnum of it's day. S&W dropped the ball in refusing to adhere to the army's request to alter their chambering of the Colt round. The S&W Schofield was the idea an army officer by the name of Schofield who helped redesign the American to make it smaller in size & other modifications. I was a little puzzled by the one being offered for sale, stating it had an SRS letter with it & I couldn't remember seeing one being listed when SRS was on line. Anyway, being a collector of weapons carried by the U.S. Cavalry, I was curious to see if mine happened to be listed by SRS. I hesitated to ask as this is primarily a T.D. site which I have enjoyed over the years. Anyway guys, I thank you again for your assistance.
